The premise for Accoralada is a great one. A woman seeks revenge on her old nemesis and searches for her lost daughters--who are in love with the nemesis' sons.
I'm sure had I seen this during its original run (of 180 episodes) I would've experienced all the highs and lows meant to be ensued by all the on screen action, but since I didn't, I had to settle for this chopped up, heavily edited 10 hour version.
The choppiness you can understand. The bloody soap went from being 180 episodes down to ten, so A LOT, and I do me A LOT, had to be edited. One minute a child is kidnapped and the next, the mother has her child again, now for this I'm grateful, I'm not a fan of dragging out the smaller stories; but the editing doesn't work with other aspects of the piece. For instance, how they fall in love, you never know. One minute they meet, the next he's telling her he can't live with out her. Say what? When did that happen?
HOWEVER, the story itself is rather entertaining and I have to admit that the choppiness and the constant "what the heck just happened" question kept me highly entertained.
So if you didn't see the soap, or you're a fan of David Zepeda or William Levy, I say buy this DVD (those two in tiny bikinis are worth your money). Sure you might scratch your head and think to yourself "what just happened" more than once, but that's part of its charm.
